The Medical Record has an arlicle on "The Enemy of the South" which is, if not alanqing, certainly a grave state ment of a serious matter. It states that the anemia ao corarnonly known in our Southem States. and which has been so generally aet down aa sheer laziness. is undoubtedly due in large part to the "hook-worm." This anemia waa long since recognized, but its cause was not known, and when one gave jc a thought it waa usua'.ly attributed to poor food, the malea of the family being shiftless and too lazy to earn their bread. Stileadiscovered, however, that the anemia waa due to the presence of the hook-worm in the inteatine, and that the laziness and general good-for nothingness of thepoor.whitea were not moral defecta, but werc due to actual physical inability to do hard labor as A-ell as to a mental diainclination, both being the direct result of this same riook-worm-induced anemia. The whites are not the only sgfferers, however, for the negro as well hsrfoors the paraaite, out they are the greaUat sufferers, negroes seeming to have acquired a partial immunity to the poiaon of the hook-worm. The latter serve aa breeders of the worm and 80w*?rs of its aeeda, to the laating injury of their white neigh bora. It is qyite Ukely alao that the South owes the introduction of the iisease to the negro who brought the paraaite frorn Africa and polluted with ?ta eggs the soil f rom the Potomac and the Ohio to the Gulf. One of the moat pitiabie reaults of this parisitic diseaae is that the physical c jndition of the aouthera country school children ia such that they cannot poaai bly aasimilate much oyer 70 per cent. of the education they receive; in other worda, somewhere about 30 per cent. of the educational efTorts are waated, and prominent southern educators have stated that this estjrnate is very con aervative.'' The Medical ftecord if of opinion that nuch of the infection of the Southern vhites ia due to the cuatom of going barefoot, the germs of the diseaae get ting into the aystem through the aoles of the naked feet. But the principal source is probably from the dejecta of ^he diaeased person thrown out on the Iand and being taken intoathe system with the aalada a?d other green stuffs eaten in a raw state. The taak of its eradlcation ia a gigantic one and only large education can accompliah it. Medicines are known that will expel the ptrasite, just as tape-worm can be cured, but of course only the phytioian can be trusted to administer theae. or to make a certain diagnoaia. Jno. D. Rockefeller haa recently given a raillion dollara to fight this diaeaae. THE SPRIGHTLY YOUNG G1RLANDTHEREPORTER. The reporter met the sprightly young girl not long since. He waa a paasen ger on a certain ateamer on a certain evening and the sprightly young girl was along, and the evening wa8 warm, nlluring the paaacngers to the upper deck. The reporter found the sprightly young girl ready for a chat with most any one. and as he himaelf waa of a talkative dispoaition he aoon became intimate to the extent of exchanging occupations, residences, etc. The girl waa communicative as well, telling where she lived, worked. went to church and sundry other faoinating bita of in formation. Aa the reporter divulged his occupation she waa mightily charm ed; never before, ao ahe aaid, had she met a literary man. Thus encouraged the reporter became still more commu? nicative and revealed the fact that in addition to newspaper work he aome times indulged in story-writing. This caused the sprightly young thing to be still more greatly interested, aa she waa sure these stories must be beautiful. i Vanity tickling the reporter he then j revealed to her that he had lately sent a story to one of the magazines, and that if she would give him her name and addreas he would take pleasure in aending a copy of the magazane for her reading. "That ia," he added, "if it ia accepted. Sometimee the editors reject stories sent them." "Oh" exclaimed the sprightly young girl, "there's no danger of that; they print almost any thing now-a-days." And she rattled on, oblivious of the cold chilla she had sent down the re? porter' s back. And sure enough the story did corne back, rejected, and the reporter has lost the old envelope on the back of which he had penciled the name of the sprightly young girl. Months after wards, reflecting deeply on the subject it occurs to the reporter that perhapa that ahe did not mean just what she seemed to mean, and that what ahe in tended to convey was that, inaamuch as so much poor stuff waa printed, what he aent would be sure of winning out. Did she mean that? THE F1DGETY GIRL I spent the afternoon yesterday with a fidgety girl. I went home with a sick headache and preferred to go without my dinner, all on the account of the fidgety girl. I'd rather sit in the room with a screaming parrot pr a chattering mon key than to be the unfortunate vis-a-vis victim pf a fidgety gir). This unfortu? nate woman ia not ill qr nervous or baahful enough to be self consoiousj she's just fidgets because she thinks about herself all the time. First it waa too hot in the room, then there was a draught, then her chair wai too aoft, then the chair that she took waa too hard; next her feet annoy ed her, they were too far from the ground. After that her halrplns pul led, and ahe didn't like the aet of her pompadour when she had fusaed her hair into ahape again; then she began to fidget about the set of her blouse. She pulled it dowo. she palled it out, she patted the front of her dress and pulled in her belt. Then she dusted her face off with her handkerchief. After that ahe look ed at her naila, and then aomething about the weight of a iocket and chain ahe wore annoyed her. After that her braceleta didn't set right. Then ahe sneezed. then she coughed, then ahe eighed. then she yawned, until I tbought I ahould have tg legve the room where ahe aat or go Into hysterlcs. Now if that girl were nervous or III there would be some excuse for it; but ahe isn't; she ia simply self-centered and tH bred. Her mother never taught her that the greatest charm that a wo man can possess is repose qf manner? and nobody ever e^ucated her up to th.e fact that it is a good deal more fun to be interested in other people t han in youraelf. This ftdgety girl ia never interested in anything but herself, her own comfort, her own motioos, her own clothes, her own appear^nce?and her own fldgetinesa.

Parker, who ia chair man of the committee of the American Baj; Association which has prepared a naw code pf ethics fqr the lawyers. and the Baltimore ^.raerjcan, gives the new co<|e with comment as follows: "Here is what the code prescribes that a lawyer may do: May defend aperson accused) of crime, although he knows hirn guilty. Publication of ordinary busineas cards U nofc per ae jmproper. May refuse retainera. He is rjQt obliged to act for any persoas who may wisb to become his clients. Must observe the statute law, though before it is fnterpreted by adjudication he ia free to advjse aa td ita validity. Must exact Qf clienta strictest com pliance with moraj law. ? Must accept compensation only fpom client, or with his knowMge and ap proval. These are the things which lawyers may not do: The office does not permit violation of law or any manner of fraud. Solicitation of busineas by advertiae ments is unurofessional May not offer profeasiona( advice to peraonawho have not sooght it. Should not render service involving disloyalty to the law or diarespect to judicial office. Improper speech to adverse witnesses and suitors is inexcusable. May not employ agente nor pay thoae who bring him clients So far aa we can see there is nothing new in these rules for the lawyer's guidance. What is needed ia not so much tbe adoption by the Bar Aasocia tion of another code of ethice or of the aame old code, but aome plan for mak ing lawyers live up to the requireraents of the code. If local bar aasociations ahould enforce their own rulea and regu lationa, somegood will beaecompliehed; but until they do, little will be gained by "resohition." Foreed Into ExIU. Wm.

(Kewpcrt Newa Timea-Herald] It is a peculiarity of human nature that we laugh at the worries of other people and treat our own seriously. The fact ia that worries are serious They may be trifling in themselves, like flies, fleas and moaquitoea, but when they awarm about ua and dislvrb our temper, our peace and our digea tiqn and, rob us of oqr sleep, they can? not be traatsd lightly. And yet we are very fooliah, after all, to let them wor ry ua. It denotea either a weakness of thefjeah or a weakness of the spirit. WUrTftU at? enelnieTanoTwe must con quer our enerqies, or be conquered by them. S,everal years ago, we dfscoyered in reading a acientifjc article, that the oyster had a philosophical way of deal ing with his or her worries and we jot ted down some observations which ran somewhat as follows: W? bave never regarded the oyster aa a nervqqa organism. Jo the contrary, the oyster has always seeraed to qs to be peculiarly self-compoiod, amiable and placid. It would be hard for us to im agine an oyster with a case of ftdgets, even when the oalawful dredger is prowling around. Whether restiag at the bottom of the bay, taking its meals in bed, or lying down bebind the coun ter ready to be butchered, the oyster appears to be entirely free frorn care and to take no thougbt for the morrow. |t certainly does not prowl around like crabs and sharks, hunting for trouble. And yet scieqtiat* tell ua that the oyster has its worries. Any foreign sqbatance, even a grain of aand, enter ing the shell of an oyster, will irritate and worry the occupant. But what doea aq oyster do with ita worries? Qoes it jurqp about and rearand charge and make ado? Not a bit of iL In ita owq calm and philosqphic way it stops the irritation by covering the irritant with the sqbatance oqt of which ita shell is made. And the worry ceases, and a pearl ia foriq?t Hurraq for th? oyater aqd. ita phiioa-r ophy! What a blesaed thing it would be if all of ua frettera would adopt the Ojster's way and turn oor worries into jewela! How character would sparkle with theae ornaraenta ot ita own crea tion!

It's an old atory. but will bear retell ing. of how for once in the hiatory of the country, or prehapa the world, every man and woman waa po? s -saed of a million in caah. Everybody waa rich and everybody of course happy. Tbe man of the houae waked up his wife on that particular morning and told her that could not hear the usual atir in the kitchen, and that he feared the cook might be sick. So he went on an exploring expedition and found on the kitchen table a note frorn the lady of the kitchen which ahe had conaider ately lef t, atating that ahe had a million dollars and had decided to do no more cooking. Ue atepped to the 'phone and rang up "central," but be got no anawer, and hailing a paasing boy whom he recognized aa one who aometimea brought him meaaagea, he learned that all the girls at the exchange had each a cool million and had quit work. He went down to the kitchen, thinking he coukl starta flre In the range. but there was, aa it happened, no coal, and as the coal yard wa? juat around the eorner, he stepped around to see if he could get a ton. He found the dealer idle, the men had all quit. each being posaessed of a million, and the only way he could get fuel was to carry it in a hod the coal-man loaned him. Returning he started the fire, but his wife tokl him the butcher had not come with the morning's meat, and ao he trotted on? to that dealer. He found him very ready to wait on him, only he tokf him that there waa'nt a pound of steak on hand ?all the hands had quit, each posscssing, aa the othera, a million dollara. The atory nw) not be prolonged. Suf fice ic to aiate that the poaaesaion of riches by every man, woman and child in the land tumed out ao great an in convenience aa tobea real hardship, for it was only the fact that people needed mon?jy that set the average man at work at all. It would be a sorry day for the world if all were so rich as to be in dependent. The very inequality of wealth'e distribution is one of the greatest blessings imsginable. It ia all very well to talk of the un eqal distribution of wealth and all that sort of thing, but that very ip equality of distribution ia what keepa the mills going. If the rich cannot do without the poor, no more can the poor do without the rich. BIBLE IN 418 TONGUES. According to the 105th report of the British and Foreign Bible Society the Bible will soon be printed in every lan guage and dialect known throughout the world. Gomplete Biblea or portions Qf the Bible were issued last year in 418 different languages. During the year six new translations were added to the list, besidcs these languages there are complete Biblea or portions of the Scriptures made in embossed. typ? for th,e bJind. iq ttn>ty-cme different lan? guages. The number of Bibles issued by the society last year was nearly 6,000,000. Of complete Biblea there were 884,195; New Testaments, 1,116,674, and por? tions of Scripture, 3,933,842, making a total of 5,934,711. The colporteurs employed in the work of distribution have an adventurous Hfe, last year aome of them were ar rested as spies in Nicaragua, robbed in Burma. bitterly mocked by Social Dem ocrats in Germany, driven out of villa ges in Peru by prieats, who bumed their books. stoned in the Philippines and beaten by Moslems in Baluchiatan. OYSTER DEPREDATORS. The Newport News Preas which haa been looking closely into the oyster queation, right on the ground, as it were, gives two reasons for depreda tiona on the natural rocks during the cloaed season. lack of police boats by the State, but mainly the trial of the depredatora by local magistrates who are insympathy with the oyster pirates. The Preas belicvea that the State will never be able to maintain a navy large enough to atop depredation as long aa jqstices of the peace diapose of violations aqd the offender knows be forehand that he will get oflf with a merely norqinal fine. "If it were a certainty that a heavy ftne, and, perhapa, a jail sentence. would follow conviction of violating the oyster laws, violationa would soon be few and far between. The present ?navy' would find little difficulty in en forcing the law, and in a few years Jamea River beda would not be bare." ?The Journal, Richmond. Our excellent exchanges are right in their concluaions. There are too many cases where local influencea of friends have defeated the ends of justice. Our Board of Fisheries have been greatly handicapped in this particular.?Ed. The Oysterman. TOO MANY CATS AND SPARROWS. Rata and mice destroy an immense amount of property annually, as we can see by the gsvernment report from Washingtqn. They alao apread diaease germs. They are intelligeqt, aagacious little creatures, We may deplore the neceeaity to kill, yet if it is necessary, it must be done. There are too many cats inour cities. Plans should be adopted by which many of them could be put swiftly out of existence. When we have our fine and extensive forest reserves in connection with cities, we will want to stock them with our beautiful native birds. Cata will be against this plan. So will also Mr. SJngh'sh Sparrow. He, so stubborn ia Us prejudkes against newoorners, ahouid be thinned out or annihilated. I speak regretfully of this little fellow, for he comrnands admiration by his boldness and energy, and his admirable devotion to his race.?Marshall Saun ders, author of 4*my Peta." MAY BE DEM0CRAT1C HOUSE. "While there is nothing certain in thia world butdeath and taxea, I believe the next House will be Democratic I expect to be a candidate for Speaker if I am a member of that House." With this statement, Representative Champ Clark, of Miasouri, minority leader in the last House, today declared hia candidacy for "UncleJoe"Cannon'a iob, and aized up in a few wqrds the effect he believea the pasaing of the Payne-Aldrich tariff bill will have on the next election.
